Statement from Martin Bennett

We invited them to tell you a little about who they are, any political history and about their political leanings.

Hello, I’m Martin and I would really love to represent you as councillor for the Little Acton community. It’s where I live and I feel lucky that I do. I’m highly motivated, enjoy talking with and listening to people and I know that I could make a positive impact within the council that would benefit the people of Little Acton.

I was born in Wrexham and I’m passionate about the town I call home. I’ve had many a conversation over the years about how friendly the people of Wrexham are and I’m proud of the fact that Wrexham is perceived as a welcoming place that is friendly, tolerant and inclusive. I’ve lived in a few places that were not, so I speak from experience. Wrexham is a great place but a shake up in the council is long overdue.

I attended London Southbank University where I graduated with an honours degree in Software Engineering and I’ve worked in the manufacturing, healthcare, engineering and finance sectors.

After graduation I stayed on in London for a little more than a decade, but when it was time to raise a family I came home to Wrexham. I have lived in Little Acton for seven years now.

If elected I promise that I will treat all people within the ward equally and that I will not favour one over the other. It’s not my intention to use the election as a springboard for a political career. I just want to see long overdue improvements in the community in which I live and where I have chosen to raise my family. We are one community and can only benefit from working together. With your vote, I’m one step closer to making that happen.
